    Our ideas of good dietary principles may differ, as people here seem to have all different eating plans that they follow.

    My #1 favorite though is The author is maintaining a 100+ lb weight loss and has been helping her mother lose weight over the last 8 weeks. I love the menu ideas and would love to have a gourmet chef of a daughter cooking for me!

    I'm bumping this thread because I need recipe ideas.

    I've been eating paleo/primal low carb for the last year or so and now I can eat grains, beans, etc again I want some new recipes, but I also want them to be relatively low in calories (as in, I can have a satisfying dinner for around 500 calories).

    Any good healthy living blogs that don't preach, or demonize certain foods?

    I'm a big fan of Harvard School of Public Health's "Healthy Eating Plate" and other information at their NutritionSource site.

    Not sure if this is helpful but being lactose and fructose intollerant has driven me to the Paleo diet and I found a realy good recipe book. Being on a pension means I have limited funds but there is also a video on the site explaining that Paleo need not be costly and is very helpful.
